As part of Cheltenham College's Choral Festival, the acclaimed Queen's Six are opening the festival with a wide ranging programme covering their extensive repertoire.

Based at Windsor Castle, the members of The Queen's Six make up half of the Lay Clerks of St George's Chapel, whose homes lie within the Castle walls. This rare privilege demands the highest musical standards, as they sing regularly for the Royal family at both private and state occasions.

Latest recording projects include the Christmas 2015 cover CD for BBC Music Magazine (recently released as a new CD, Lo, how a rose e’er blooming), a CD of secular Tudor music entitled Her Heavenly Harmony: Profane Music from the Royal Court, and a self-produced disc of some of their much loved pop and jazz arrangements, The mood we’re in...
